This week at GTC 2015 NVIDIA, is making sure to emphasize developer outreach on their mobile platform to not just NVIDIA-made SHIELD devices , but to other Tegra-toting machines as well. Sebastien Domine, Sr.
NVIDIA made the case this week for an already-strong collection of vehicles sporting their current, previous, and next-generation processor systems. While this particular vehicle doesn't roll with the NVIDIA DRIVE CX system we're seeing on the vehicles of tomorrow, it does work with an NVIDIA GPU, and the infotainment system that directly precedes DRIVE CX.
Earlier this week NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang confirmed that Lucasfilm was using NVIDIA technology to make Star Wars: The Force Awakens. "I'm out-of-my-body excited about this," said Huang, "I'll create any technology that helps them make Star Wars faster." Today NVIDIA confirmed what hardware Lucasfilm was using to push the next generation in Star Wars production.
Today we've gotten the opportunity to get up close and personal with the world's first 3D-printed car, "Strati" by Local Motors. This vehicle is being shown this week with NVIDIA DRIVE CX inside - that's a digital cockpit computer only just announced this January at CES 2015.
This week NVIDIA decided to reveal their next big graphics card at a press event that wasn't explicitly theirs. At the Epic Games event, with Tim Sweeney next to him, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang revealed the NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X was revealed for the first time. This card was revealed only with the promise of the whole audience that they'd come to GTC 2015.
Not too long ago NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX 980M and 970M notebook processors. Now it's time to bring heat with a couple more entries into the GTX 900M lineup with the GeForce GTX 960M and 950M, aimed first and notebooks from ASUS, Lenovo, Alienware, Acer, and HP - or Hewlett Packard, as the top of the laptop suggests.
There are mobile games meant for tapping or swiping or turning your devices every which way. there are those that need careful strategy and planning before you start playing. And then there are games where you need to just bomb everything away. This new game called Bombing Bastards is, from the name itself, the third kind of game that we mentioned.
Speaking on the Dawn of Mobile VR this week at GDC 2015, Oculus CTO John Carmack suggested that developers plan for mobile and PC release of VR apps. "If you're making a Gear VR product," said Carmack, "plan on developing it for PC, too.
One of the Android devices that was first seen during CES 2015 was a tablet from Jide called the Remix 2-in-1. This tablet has the look of a Windows PC and runs a special version of Android called Remix OS. That OS brings the tablet user a taskbar and the ability to run apps in windows that can be resized on the fly. Like I said, it sounds and looks a lot like a Windows tablet.
This week we've had the opportunity to take a peek at the newest in virtual reality computing and entertainment at GDC 2015. Oculus VR is working with multiple content creators and game engine-makers - one of the most impressive of which is Crytek.
